As a child I loved to make these funny face toasted cheese sandwiches. They are often forgotten in my house until the mood strikes me. My kids were so pleased to not only make their own dinner but to play with their food as well.
We arrived home late last night to no dinner plans. I offered the idea of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. This led me to the idea of Funny Face Toasted Cheese Sandwiches. We had everything and most people do. Even not making a face this is a tasty sandwich. I’m not sure if it is tasty because this is a comfort food or actually good.
The possibilities are endless with these sandwiches. As a child it was always an onion smile, olive eyes, and thinly sliced dill pickle nose. We worked with what we had and to each person’s taste.
Funny Face Toasted Cheese Sandwiches:
- sandwich bread, square bread works best
- medium cheddar or Colby jack cheese, sliced
- onion, thinly sliced
- olives, sliced
- salami or pepperoni
- bread and butter or dill pickles
- Mrs.Dash or Italian seasoning, optional
Place a slice of bread on a baking sheet. Spread about 1 Tbs of ketchup per piece of bread. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning or Mrs.Dash if desired.
Top with sliced cheese and decorate with vegetables.
Broil sandwiches until cheese is melted and hot.
Great served just as a sandwich or with tomato soup.
